Following a pair of summer internships with Centerbrook, Ben joined the firm’s full-time staff in the summer of 2018 upon graduation from the esteemed Architecture, Art and Planning program at Cornell University.

A second-generation designer, Ben was able to step in right away and provide technical assistance for Centerbrook design teams through his expertise with software programs like Lumion, Revit, Grasshopper and Rhinoceros 3D. During his second internship with Centerbrook, Ben was instrumental in implementing virtual reality at the firm.

Originally from Suffield, Connecticut, Ben’s father is an architect and his mother was a graphic designer. Despite the family’s artistic influence, he wasn’t overtly drawn to the profession growing up. Only as an upperclassman at Suffield Academy – when it came time to start applying for colleges – did he reach a decision on what and where to study. With a design career in mind, Ben picked Cornell, annually ranked at or near the top of the Architectural Record list of “America’s Top Architecture Schools.”

Beyond his technical proficiencies, Ben has professional interests in sustainability, digital fabrication and parametric design.

In his spare time, Ben’s hobbies include metal and woodworking. He also enjoys sailing and target shooting.
